Then allow me to rephrase and omit percentage. If 34 members of an 80 member guild try their hardest, then they will beat a guild that has 33 members total, no matter what that guild does. The fact that more than half of the guild could take a vacation and still win means that it's not a balanced game.But I wasn't talking about percent participation. I was talking about the number of members who participate.
The percent participation would be the participation rate or rate of participation.
We won the first week, so now we're in a higher league with other winners. That makes sense. However, you wouldn't take a winning high school team, college team, and professional team and put them all in the same league just because they are all winners. The high school teams need to play against other high school winners, and so forth.
I agree that guild size is not the ONLY thing that matters. But a winning team of 80 is going to beat a winning team of 30 every time. And matching teams up like this means that a smaller guilds only hope is that the other team doesn't play.
